During Tamturbo’s history we have delivered various containerized compressed air systems for customers needing a movable, flexible solution that is shielded from the elements like rain, snow, etc.

When in 2020 a large food industry company asked us to create an all-inclusive modular compressor room for their factory, we decided to go ‘all in’. We decided to pack the 20-foot container with all of the winning features for the compressed air after treatment as well as all of the control and compressor optimization options we have available. It is also the most compact solution for the flow 53 m3/min with variable flow.

In situations where plant space is at a premium, customers may want to place their compressor room outside. At other times customers may want to configure a compressor’s installation for a more turnkey operation in order to ensure production uptime. To satisfy those needs, we created the Tamturbo Modular Compressor Room – Tamturbo MCR.

Tamturbo offers a modular solution that lets customers choose from a range of Tamturbo VSD turbo compressors, different types of dryers and other compressed air equipment. The customer can order and get the compressor room that best meets their needs.

The MCR comes with a variety of options available as a build-in, ranging from environmental add-ons to smart connectivity and control add-ons, ISO 8573-1:2010 filtration class add-ons, and safety add-ons to manage customer expectations and needs across different market segments.

The new Tamturbo MCR features our 3-stage TT325 VSD turbo compressor, the most energy efficient way to produce 100% oil-free compressed air of variable flow. It also includes compressed air pre- and after treatment: prefiltration, preheating, precooling, dryer, compressed air quality management, state-of-the-art efficiency management system, closed-loop cooling for the compressor as well as cooling for the other components. All you need to do is plug it into power, connect the compressed air piping and start enjoying the most efficient and highest quality compressed air.

In addition to the instant installation, easy on-site application and full flexibility to use the compressor room outdoors, the concept also enables flexibility: should the compressed air requirements on site change the unit can easily be changed to a better fitting model, therefore always ensuring the right amount of 100% oil-free compressed air at the lowest energy consumption. Additionally, if you decide to go with the Tamturbo Touch-Free™ Air programme, the MCR can be fully outside of your balance sheet – you only pay for the output of the system, that is utilised compressed air.
